Four dead in O-hi-O comes to mind

I was wondering.

How loyal is the military to the U.S. citizenry?

Would they raise arms against their vocal opposition and demonstration?

When was the last time troops were used for security for a national CIVILIAN event?

Bush has been flying all over the country and hasn't shed an eyelash. WHY NOW?

I would suggest this gives an analogy to a third world potentate just too juicy to pass up, if it wasn't so true and so scary.

Four dead in O-hi-O comes to mind.... as do the convention riots in Chicago... both associated with the Vietnam conflict... and then there were the draft riots in NYC during the Civil War, and the use of local police and 'Pinkerton' agents in various union-busting activities about 100 years ago, and the various riots of 1968 (DC, LA/Watts and others), and there are probably many more. Few of these, excepting the National Guard incident at Kent State in Ohio, involved military troops, although many military 'observers' had been noted at several of these.

Can you feel the LOVE tonight ?, Unprecedented inauguration security plan

WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Security, always a concern in Washington, will be at unprecedented levels for President Bush's second inauguration Jan. 20 -- possibly including 4,000 troops.

Security planning for the event has been under way for months to protect the president, government officials, visiting heads of state, and citizens attending the inaugural events, the Washington Post reported Sunday.

Security measures -- at least the ones being made public -- will include rooftop snipers, better scanning machines, scores of bomb-sniffing dogs and law enforcement officers augmented by about 2,000 out-of-town police officers. Officials said there will be a police officer posted every six to eight feet along the inauguration parade route and a maritime security force led by the Coast Guard will protect the Potomac and Anacostia rivers.
